a. Decisions of the Station management with respect to the Promotion are final.
b. Five (5) Wingstop Wing Eating Contest contestants (“Contestants”) will be selected on Monday, October 7, 2013 at approximately 9:00am CT in a random drawing of all eligible entries by both online and text entry.
c. The Contestants will be notified by telephone immediately after the drawing and will be required to confirm their willingness to participate in the Wingstop Wing Eating Contest (the “Event”) by 5:00pm CT on Monday, October 7, 2013. At this time, details and logistics of the Event will be discussed. If any Contestant is unreachable within 24 hour of notification attempt or if any Contestant does not confirm their acceptance by 5:00pm CT on Monday, October 7, 2013, another Contestant will be randomly selected as an alternate from all remaining eligible entries. All Contestants must execute waiver and release forms prior to participating in the Event. If a Contestant does not show up to the designated location (Station’s Broadcast location located on the Southeast Lawn in the Ultimate Tailgate area of Soldier Field on Thursday, October 10 by 6:00pm CT they will be disqualified and will not be able to participate in the Event, regardless of traffic or parking obstacles and the remaining Contestants will compete for the Grand Prize.
d. To determine the Grand Prize Winner, the five (5) Contestants will compete in a two (2) minute “Wing Eating” contest which will be judged by Wingstop on Thursday, October 10, 2013 at approximately 6:45pm CT. Each Contestant will be given a container with approximately twenty (20) mango habanero wings. Each container will be weighed prior to starting the Event and the weight of each container will be marked on each container with a sharpie marker. Once the Event starts, Contestants must put the bones back in the original container for weighing after the contest. If Contestants eat the entire contents of the container provided to them, they will be given another container, also marked with total weight. A Wingstop representative will be designated as the official timer, calling out at one minute, 30 seconds and then facilitating a ten-second count down. When time is called, all Contestants must put their hands up. The Contestant who eats the most wings, by weight, will be determined the Grand Prize Winner.
e. Chicken meat must be eaten directly from the bones. Stripping the bones of meat first and eating the meat at one time will not be allowed. Napkins in any form are not allowed. If a contestant leaves the wing-eating area for any reason during the Event competition, or eats any wings before the Event officially begins, he or she will be disqualified from the competition. Contestants may not make physical contact with other Contestants at any time; any Contestant who deliberately makes contact with another Contestant will be disqualified at the sole discretion of the Station. If a Contestant purges or vomits at any point during the competition, he or she will immediately be disqualified. At the end of the two (2) minute period, the Contestant who eats the most wings, by weight, will win the Grand Prize. All remaining Contestants will each win one (1) Runner-Up Prize. In the event of a tie, Grand Prize winner will be selected in a random drawing of all tied Contestants. All decisions and disputes will be decided by the Station, in its sole and absolute discretion. All decisions of the Station are final.
f. Odds of being selected as a Contestant depend on the number of eligible entries received.
g. Winners need not listen to the Station but must be present at the Event to participate and to win.
h. Potential prize winner(s) will be notified onsite at the conclusion of the Event on October 10, 2013. Prize(s) will be awarded only upon confirmation of eligibility and completion of all requisite releases. The winners (or their parent or legal guardian if under the age of majority) must execute and return any required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within ten (10) days of winning or prize will be forfeited. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the required fully-executed affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize.
